  • It is never wrong to accept a gift

    As in the gift offered by the giver is a "true gift" that is given willingly and is benign to the giver and reciever.Response to Refutations: The SAT example is not pointing out that it is wrong to accept a gift; as the wrongness always comes from NOT the “act of receiving,” but the potential receiver’s INTENT to swindle the giver.
